% of the vote twice. roosevelt, eisenhower, reagan, and obama. republicans in the house will be able to get some concessions, but i think there will be a big budget deal next year, and it will be much moran obama budget deal than paul ryan budget deal. elections have consequences. karen capehart, did you expect anything this big this fast? bill kristol is influential with republicans in washington. i'm stunned with what i'm hearing? >> i almost fell out of my chair when boehner said revenues. the idea of increasing revenues. that's a central argument that we have been having over the last four years, and the very expensive i told you so i guess. if we're going to get to this problem, we have to deal with revenues, we can't just do it all on the spending side. >> jonathan capehart, there is bill kristol teaching republicans how to talk about this. but it does involve a word for word refutation of what they said in the past, that higher rates will kill the economy. there is bill kristol pointing out how we've done perfectly fine under higher rates in the past. >> what he's trying to get through to
. >> getting back to the standoff between republicans in congress and president obama, i wanted to ask about the meeting that took place today. you had labor leaders there. they have said in an interview if medicare and social security are part of any deal that president obama strikes with republicans, labor will be against it. and i look at that and i say, how can that not be part of any deal that obama strikes with republicans? how much trouble will he have on the left selling any deal he reaches? >> it's going to be hard to sell. any deal that deals with those entitlement issues. harry reid said clearly here, social security, we will not touch social security as part of this package. so it's probably going to end upcoming down to e medicare and medicaid. if the president starts to negotiate on those issues because he'll have to do some of that in order to get republicans support on taxes. even mitch mcconnell went to the floor and said, i will consider higher revenues, but the president has to agree to something on entitlements. so the question is, if he does do something, how many democr
for republicans this week. their history of obstruction is coming back to haunt them. president obama made it clear friday he will insist on getting rid of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy in a new economic plan. congressional republicans are playing tough in public instead of tax increases on the rich they are pushing nonspecific tax reform. >> it's clear that there are a lot of special interest loopholes. >> we can increase revenue without increasing the tax rates on anybody in this country. we can lower the rates, broaden the base. >> eliminate all these tax credits and tax deductions. you can generate $1 trillion in revenue. you can lower tax rates by doing this. >> eric cantor put the talking points together in a letter to republicans. what would be sbes a fundamental reform of the tax code that lowers rates, broadens the base, makes america's businesses kpet ty again. let's see here now. lowering rates, broadening the base, ending loopholes and e deductions. where have we heard this before? >> if we eliminate some of the loopholes and e deductions at the high end, putting a limit on
don't think. i don't understand why republicans won't take obama's offer to freeze taxes to everyone below $2350,000, make it $1 million. really? the republican party is going to fall on their sword to protect millionaires half of whom vote democratic and live in hollywood? >> eric: raising taxes is not the answer. allowing people to keep their hard earn money is the answer and the only way to bring growth back. growth is the gasoline that powers the american economy. >> kimberly: i like that. >> eric: then you can start. were you shaking your head when mr. bill kristol decided raising taxes is okay thing to do? >> kimberly: i was. i usually like what he has to say. it didn't love that. i didn't heart that. he agrees with axelrod so i really don't like that. let me tell you something, there wasn't a mandate here. charles krauthammer even said so. he didn't win by an enormous amount to say all the americans are like tax me, tack me, break me and my family so there is nothing left. that is not the american dream. gawps can i get the conversation back on track. >> kimberly: look at the
that the only person that has a mandate is barack obama. the house republicans have a mandate. it's fundamentally different than obama's mandate. they would be well put not to try to cut a deal with obama but to say paul ryan is going to bring forth a solution to the fix, we're going to gather votes for it. i guarantee you you'll have a democratic substitute and if you can get enough republicans to vote for it, terrific. >> if only the americans can see the look of befudslement and confusion when newt gingrich says things like no house republican should be bamboozled into this idea. bamboozled into this idea that the president just won re-election and the senate is still firmly in democratic hands. >> right. what he's basically saying is, to rank and file republicans vote with your district and forget about the phone call that john boehner had with all of you folks saying get in line, we actually have to have a record to run on in 2014. we can't be obstructionists anymore. the american people have spoken in the election, let's do something. newt gingrich, former speaker of the hou
for president obama. so the republicans have a little outreach to do. and i'd suggest one way instead of just giving speeches is work with us on immigration reform. >> from your advantage point as a democrat who has been cross aisle oriented, what happens within the republican party between those republican senators and who they see as constituents on an issue like that? he's secretary of state in kansas. he's there. and that's an active and vocal faction in the republican party. how do they lose the debate if they need to lose the debate for republicans to survive? >> the business community can play a major role. we have major businesses that want to see immigration reform. they look at their employee base. they look at the possibility of the reform and what it would mean with earned citizenship. that's a group that they will listen to. and then you just have what happened to them in this election. people that were just adhering to these rigid ideologies. we got some democrats in there that were problem solvers. i think that sends a message as well. other possibility would be energy reform.
republicans called barack obama who is a very moderate president. has been and most people understand that. ( crowd cheering ) >> stephen: so what happens? is there now a civil war within the republican party. >> i hope so. because i want conservatism to revive. i want it to be connected to reality, to what's going on in the world ,to the changing demographics of the society, the changing nature of the society and come up with constructive proposals to help solve our problems. i want the republican party to make "obamacare" better rather than actually just abolishing it. i want... ( crowd cheering ) i want the republican party to accept that climate change is happening, for goodness sake. ( crowd cheering ) and i don't think they've been open to persuasion so far, but i think the one thing they understand is losing. and they believe they won by a landslide. they're telling us, george will and michael barone were predicting-- they're not crazy, mainstream republicans very serious people telling us it would be a landslide for romney. where do they go now? >> stephen: i know the problem. they
's it. the house remains in the republican control, the senate is in democratic control barack obama is still the president. let's hope that these past four years of obstruction and difficulty, the fever has broken. even though the players remain the same perhaps the fever has broken and as chris christie and the president learned in new jersey when we forget the party bickering and political [bleep] we can accomplish certain things even for people who have lost their houses. it's a remarkable lesson for all of us. that is all for our show tonight. join us again tomorrow at our regularly scheduled non-live taping. i might even shave and shower. [laughter] right now we're going to go to stephen co-bea colbert at the ct report. >> don't tell me anything, jon, no spoilers, please. >> jon: haven't you been watching the news. >> not at all. i can't go into my show knowing anything about what my show is about.

republican should be bamboozled into this idea that the only person who has a mandate is barack obama. the house republicans have a mandate. it's fundamentally different than the president's mandate. instead, to say, paul ryan is going forth a solution, we'll gather votes for it. i guarantee you'll get the democratic substitute. >> what do you think about that congressman? >> i think the house is republican controlled, a consequence of redistricting. and it was the superpacs that were very engtive in some house races. the fact of the matter is, we gained and there still six out there to be decided. we could gain more. i think at the house level, for the house to continue the role its played for two years is bad advice. the issue the famous statement, what i mean by compromise, i think cantor said, we have to agree with us. that's gone now. the president has a pull pit that he can take to the public on these issues and increase pressure on congress. >> lot of other issues on the docket. whether it's in the lame duck or coming up in the new session of congress, gingrich also talked abou
their hat in the ring with republicans overtly saying obama was, as you remember, reverend, because we did a program about this -- >> yes, we did. >> -- anti-religious. they called him anti-religious. the roman catholic bishops, evangelicals are totally ineffective and can the republican party move past that? not on your life. >> let me show you some reaction of evangelical leaders on the right to the president's re-election. >> what have they got? he doesn't seem to have any program yet he's not able to win re-election. what is going on with the american people? >> i think this was an evangelical disaster. >> romney was pro life, pro family, but i don't think we engaged in the ad war on those issues. i think if we would have engaged instead of being forced to be on the defensive, i still think we would have gotten many, many more of what used to be call the reagan democrats, catholics and others who are pro life and pro family. but may identify more with the democrats on economic issues, but with republicans and conservatives on values issues. >> so, frank, when you hear gary bower talkin
for barack obama. and republicans had no ground game and the obama campaign had a magnificent ground game. they knew who their voters were and they knew they had to get them out to the polls and they did. the republicans thought they could b.s. their way into the white house and it doesn't work that way. plus he had a lot of bad ideas and two lousy candidates. what a great show we have for you today. igor vole ski. tuesdays with judd. now tuesdays with igor since judd is off on paternity leave. he will be in along with eric burns from bullfight strategies. then we'll have something special today. devote one hour, the last hour together today to the white house fellows program. it is a program that i'm close to. been following for a long time. it is a great program. you're going to get to meet the director of the white house fellows and three of the current white house fellows are here this year in washington d.c. all of that coming up and the latest on the petraeus scandal and another general caught with his pants
, for a lot of these republicans you bet obama. good luck with that. let me ask you this. as republicans move ford we have the president able to skate to the finish line. not answer questions about benghazi before, during and after. and he lied to the american people as evidenced by the fact they saw this in realtime. you've got iran, a drone shot at. he doesn't tell the american people. now, we're seeing he may have known about petraeus, what does that mean? >> he thinks he's hiding a ball from us. on the subject of regulation, the flexibility act requires president of the united states to send to the congress in april and october the agenda of all of the economically significant rules that are in the pipeline. the president did do it in april. he's required by law to do it. the president has a press score when he does things like that, like benghazi and the case about what he required or ordered to be done that wasn't done in benghazi, what did he know about david petraeus? he just ignored it. they're not going to ask you about it. >> i would think, let me ask you think. >> good luck with t
obama is back in the white house, democrats are back in control of the senate, and republicans are back running the house. that's what prevailed before americans voted, when deadlock reigned in washington, little got done, and the country was frustrated and angry. are we in for more of the same? the talk we are hearing in washington sounds altogether too familiar. so let's consider what's ahead with two people of different philosophies about what should be done. bob herbert was a long-time liberal columnist for "the new york times" until he retired last year and became a distinguished senior fellow for the national think tank demos. he's been on the road for months now, reporting for his forthcoming book, "wounded colossus." reihan salam writes "the agenda," that's a daily blog for the conservative national review online. he is a policy advisor at the think tank economics 21 and a columnist for reuters. he is also the co-author with ross douthat of the much talked-about book, "grand new party: how republicans can win the working class and save the american dream." welcome to both of you
is obama care. there's some disagreement in the party. should governors, republican governors, republican members of congress accept it and help implement it, tell them how to take advantage of the new programs? or should the party continue to fight it? >> a, it's going to survive, he won the election. he's not going to preside over the repeal of obama care. b, it's not going to work. you're already seeing, for example, major chains in restaurants saying we're hiring everybody for 29 hours. >> would you tell rick scott and rick perry to work to implement this? >> no, i'd tell them to look out what's best for their state. if they think it's best for their state to implement it, implement it, if they'd rather not be involved, they should have a hard-nose look at what's best for their state. i do want to say -- there are two mandates out of this election. i mean, no house republican should be bamboozled into this idea that the only person who has a mandate is barack obama. the house republicans have a mandate, it's fundamentally different than obama's mandate and they ought to learn a lesson

momentum here and the republicans are on the back foot. so in that sense, i think obama has an advantage. on the other hand republicans do have a good case to make when it comes to taxes because something that's not often discussed is that the costs of obama care will start to kick in in 2013. one example, businesses which hire 50th notice ewill face a fine of $40,000 if they don't take on government approved health care insurance. so republicans can argue that when we approach this fiscal cliff, we have to keep costs and regulations as light as possible and any tax increase could be harmful. so there is some argument on this. >> is it telling us that glenn hubbard is basically saying, yes, we need to close he loopholes and cap deductions, but also we're willing to give when it comes to higher taxes on the wealthy? it seem like it's becoming the end game. >> equally significant to grefer norquist one of the big anti-tax champions said we have to look again at a carbon tax idea. which the congress ional budget said. i like the cliff you played of senator bob corker very significant saying
